Chris Godwin, who is making his return after missing the past few months due to an ACL injury, appeared to be injured on the sideline and limped off with about 1:30 left in the second quarter as the Buccaneers take on the Cowboys.

The injury looked to be in his leg as he was holding his hamstring on the sideline. It's uncertain at the moment if anything is wrong with the leg, but it's certainly something to keep an eye on.

Godwin looked like his old self, catching three passes for 35 yards already. Outside of maybe Mike Evans, there's a good argument to be made that he's the most important player in the Buccaneers receiving core and will be a huge miss for them.

Tampa currently has a 12-3 lead at halftime and should be up more but failed to convert inside of the Cowboys' 30 multiple times. If the offense continues looking like it did in the first half, there's a good chance that they will find the end zone multiple times in the second half.

At the start of the second half, reporters confirmed that it's a hamstring injury and he will miss the remainder of the second half. This is likely the Buccaneers being safe rather than Godwin being seriously injured, hopefully.
